Be the change you want to see in the world

 “ Change is nature’s law”

- Unknown

One thing I have noticed is that every person knows what is wrong and what is to be done.

But very few people want to take the initiative.

I want to share a story of a painter who wants to boast his art skills in front of audience.

So he goes to a town and created a marvelous painting of town and placed it near the market 

and below he has written: “If people found some problem in the painting please mark it out”.

He come back later and was shocked by looking at the picture, his whole picture was marked by errors.

He sat in the same place trying to get out of his shock.

A wise man seeing this comes near him and advised him to change the text to ” If people found any problem please correct it “

The next evening he checks his painting again, he was more shocked than yesterday.

There was not a single error in the painting and also people started praising him for the marvelous painting.

It is very easy to find problems in anything no matter how much great it is, but when asked for correcting it no one takes a step forward.

Why is that so ? – because it needs efforts and guts to stand out and our education system and government works on conformity and sheep walk.

So be the first person to change, don’t chicken out.

Gandhiji was the greatest example of this idea in practical.

So what are going to do about it? Are you going to just study make it good knowledge and debate over it?

Or do you have the guts to make the initiative?
